For our first steps into reducing the amount of waste we each produce, we have put together a list of some of our zero waste New Year's Resolutions. Each resolution was contributed by one person.
My New Year's Resolution is to...
...make sure I take and use reusable bags when I go grocery shopping.
...get small reusable bags for produce, and whenever I have to use a plastic bag from a grocery store I will bring it back to the store for recycling.
...only use my reusable K-cup for coffee and reduce my paper and plastic bag use by using reusable shopping bags.
...bring my reusable to go box when I go to restaurants, and to the dining halls if they will let me use it.
These resolutions will reduce the use and disposal of paper and plastic grocery bags, plastic produce and bulk bags, plastic disposable K-cups, and styrofoam, paper, and plastic disposable to go containers.
No matter how big or small a change is, we hope that these resolutions help to inspire you to reduce your waste in any way you can.
